Taiko and Hearing Protection

Taiko News

Many people are attracted to taiko due to the incredible power of the drum's sound. However, it's important to remember that high sound volume can damage your hearing over time. Taiko have been measured at 110 decibels (about the same as a passing train) and the recommend "safe" time to be exposed to that level is only 15 minutes. 

Of course a typical taiko performance/practice will not sustain 110db for 15 minutes, but the sound exposure does accumulate and so does the potential for hearing loss. Rolling Thunder recommends that you wear earplugs when practicable, and EMT makes affordable, re-usable earplugs that reduces the volume without reducing the sound quality.

In addition, there are many downloadable information sheets about hearing protection, the potential for hearing loss and sound levels at the E-A-R website
